I just don't buy into "IT".
Brady was a guy who surprised everyone...... I agree with you that some of the "IT" factor guys have busted like Leaf and Vince. But some guys have busted based on pure talent. Couch, Russell, Ponder, Locker, Gabbert....... These guys didn't have that something about them that struck you as special. They were drafted high because of their physical ability alone for the most part.
There isn't a science to this thing. I'm leaning (and I say leaning because I'm not all the way there yet) towards Manziel because I think he provides something skill set wise and energy wise that will give this team a boost. I think Teddy can too so don't think I'm not against the pick. We're only in January.
